English for Law

The English for Law (EFL) at Atma Jaya Language Learning Center (PPB) is an upper-intermediate to advanced level course for learners who need to be able to use English in the legal profession.


This course is especially intended for law students, practicing lawyers and legal officers alike. We are aware that most students taking this course need to be able to provide advice regarding their own legal system in English as opposed to mastering US or UK legal concepts. Thus, while the legal concepts introduced are found in the legal systems of the UK and the USA, the course also calls on the students to compare the Indonesian law with that of the US or UK.


The course is divided into three levels: Basic, Intermediate, and Advanced. Upon enrollment, students will be given a diagnostic test as part of the needs analysis in order for the teacher to determine their level.



Law vs Language.

It is important to bear in mind that the EFL at Atma Jaya Language Learning Center (PPB) is intended to help law students and lawyers learn English in a legal context and to be able to express their ideas in providing legal services. The course seeks to strike the balance between the legal concepts and the language skills, with an international perspective being fostered.
